Jackson County will hold surplus yard sale Oct. 4

Jackson County will sell off some of its surplus office furniture and equipment at a yard sale scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, Oct 4.

A wide variety of office furnishings, including wooden desks, metal desks, filing cabinets, rolling desk chairs, meeting room chairs, storage cabinets, shelves, partitions, three-ring binders, desktop supplies, doors and more will be offered for sale to the general public.

The sale will be held on Mosquito Lane, off Table Rock Road, near Antelope Road in White City. Look for signs at a large wooden building.

All sales will be cash only, with no early birds, advance sales or holds. Items must be transported at time of purchase. All items will be sold "as-is."

The sale will follow a yard-sale format; it's not an auction.

The sale is made possible by a partnership of Jackson County SMARTWorks, Jackson County Facility Maintenance and Jackson County Master Recyclers.
